Re: "The three words that can save your life" - BBC

Interesting idea, will see how my Satnav works with it. Even if I have to make it a “point” to go to. Especially for bigger buildings or site , often get told to use a different postcode than what Satnav or their address gives.

Re: M1 safety week reduces collisions by a third

Perhaps what it demonstrates is that road safety can be improved but does require significant investment. Whilst the week's activity is a positive, does it also reflect how little is done (relatively) for the other 51 weeks of the year!

Re: Electric Vehicles

Hi Messy, great explanation and a big business commitment to EVs. Out of interest, have the costs (financial and CO) being factored into any of the benefits of them. Can EV park inside at places other
than the charging points or is the charging seen ax the only area in need of action.

Re: First Aid at Work Training – A Notice For Employers And Training Providers

It’s good to have guidance, and the idea that longer time may be needed, suggesting it is due to volume of students. It fails to mention or consider the small ratio training for small companies where a 1:2 or similar means that a real world course time could be significantly reduced. “Time in class”...

Re: Examples / case law/ case studies (recent) of consequences of not following procedures

Hi Bernicarey, usually, a crown court will complete and then, if needed, an inquest will follow. Although Coroners Court is supposed to be the Highest” court in the land, it usually follows a criminal court. IMHO, having been involved in serious investigations,?where the evidence is pretty much ther...

Re: Examples / case law/ case studies (recent) of consequences of not following procedures

Its a nice idea and there have been some great examples of heavy fines via the HSE website, but so far not seen where they then update the results following an appeal.I can't recall a case where the employer / manager has been fined and not the company - at least not a headline worthy one. What is p...

Re: Nuclear Provision: explaining the cost of cleaning up Britain's nuclear legacy

So by my simple maths, there is a running cost by the NDA of about £3 billion a year and then its over some 120 years. In simple sums that's about £360 billion (todays rates).
Now the maths I'd have problems with is how to say that financially its a viable and sensible power source option?

Re: 3 Hinges on Fire Doors.

You may find the frequency of seeing 3+ hinges stems from the installers / door spec with 3 or more hinges being fitted based on the door size, weight etc. Look at domestic doors - lightweight or panel doors tend to be 2 with solid or large format being 3 or more even if not fire rated. It’s what th...

Re: Driving for work private and hire cars

Hi Mel, Joe many drivers are we talking about? You could check licences yourself or outsource it - there are lots of providers with varying ways for reporting back to you. Did use a risk based system starting at 6 or -2 months then reducing the period depending on the points accrued. Require them to...

Re: Battery operated alarms

What batteries do you mean. Today, I have been replacing the batteries to my home smoke/heat alarms (Hard wired with 9v battery back up) as one was beeping to say it was getting low. I had dated them when installed in May'15 and the batteries showed May/June'19 as the best by date. For me it was a f...

Re: No food or drink beyond this point!!!!

We’ve set out target audience - the staff. From them to students adopt their habits. There seem to be few places these days who do not allow or even encourage the provision of drinking water either personal bottles or the larger water fountains, and it’s a natural progression to coffee, tea etc to e...

Re: Interview tips

Competency based interview - as I understand them, the original job desc will show the competencies expected. They will be the key ones they will look at in interview. For example if it mentioned "communication", then the interview may well ask how you would demonstrate your comms skills - that may ...
